Least Battery consuming Rom for TP2?

Just recently installed Energy Rom along with all the Battery Saving Cabs and even the Telus Radio rom; I still find that it consumes twice the battery usage than the Mighty Rom I had before.

Bottom line question: Could members suggest which rom might consume the least battery usage? Would appreciate it.

Mods, if i've posted in the wrong area please move my thread to the correct section. Thanks

Your in the right section. My advice is to try several of them out and test for yourself. Depending on setup, every devices battery life will vary.

Re: Least Battery consuming Rom for TP2?

My experience is that with the more eye candy and things installed /cooked into each rom, the more battery life it will drain. Consider a light rom such as LEAD ROM lite version @elesbb user rom, or even the sprint basics rom by @scrosler, I usually had the most battery life with those roms.

Re: Least Battery consuming Rom for TP2?

true. when there is more to look at, i tend to leave on the screen longer which drains the battery more

I really think whatever rom you use if you apply some known power management tweaks and turn off auto updating items such as quickgps, facebook, push mail, weather, stocks, etc. you should have decent battery life. I like to manually update these things so I can have more control. Setting a lower setting and a shorter dim and power off for the backlight is big also.

Re: Least Battery consuming Rom for TP2?

I know it sounds crazy, but myself and others have noticed when overclocked, battery was significantly better. I was usually using one of the 6.5 Energy ROM builds. I'll have to see if I can find which overclocking thread it was but I was shocked that lots of people were reporting that.

I didn't really notice much of a hit while overclocked.

The response has been enormous -- thanks to everyone who contributed. Matchstickredgti, if you could check which build it is that would be great.

Re: Least Battery consuming Rom for TP2?

something that I've been doing in place of the push email is forwarding my emails to gmail to a text message to phone, I can even respond to it through phone but they'll get my phone text address instead of email address or I can open gmail in browser and send it there

Anyways this lets me know when I get the email as soon as it goes to inbox, faster than push email (it's real time and not every set amount of time) and phone doesn't have to do a thing to wait for email
